Just starting to do pipe jacking: need help from experts.

Just starting to do pipe jacking: need help from experts.

Background: I'm working in a family run large earthwork contractor. My boss (also close friend) recently mentioned the potential of pipe jacking in my country (developing). Can I get some help answering the following questions please?

  1. What are some good brands that produce pipe jacking equipment? I'm thinking Herrenknecht and Bauer?

  2. How much does it cost to acquire a good quality set of plant and equipment for diameter around 1.5 meters? I'm thinking about Herrenknecht TBM, etc.

  3. Apart from the TBM, the jack and STP (if slurry), what are the other plant and equipment needed?

Thank you.
